Random Flix/Life Moment: Mithril

I'm working on a post that takes me a while to finish, but I thought I share this funny story that happened after dinner last night. You see, I was wearing this sequin tank to work today, which is a see-through blouse with itsy-bitsy golden sequins all over. It's kinda festive so I tone in …

Random assortment of movie musings and news

Hope everyone's had a nice weekend, it's first weekend of Summer for us here in the States. I didn't see any new flicks this weekend, but my girlfriends and I had our monthly movie night this Friday and saw Jane Austen's Persuasion (1995).

DVD Review: Nine

"Style is the new content," Kate Hudson's character Stephanie, an American fashion journalist working for Vogue told Guido Contini. Well, that's about sums up the sensibility of this movie, which is nothing short of style over substance. Based on Frederico Fellini's 8-1/2 (reviewed by guest blogger Rockerdad), it centers on the renowned Italian director Guido …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: RED

I normally post this on a Friday, but you know what, I can't wait for y'all to see it (if you haven't already). Whaddayaknow, another flick about spies? Seems like this is an endless recurring theme, but it's not like Hollywood to pump out a working formula until there's nothing left. But with a cast …

Rental Pick: Cinema Paradiso (1988)

I saw Cinema Paradiso a few months ago during our monthly gals' movie nite, but haven't got a chance to write a review on it. Since I just watched Nine recently which share a 'cinema italiano' theme, why not do the review back to back (the Nine review will be up tomorrow). But the the …

X-Men: First Class – The prequel I’m actually excited about!

In a world where there seems to be no cure for Hollywood's sequelitis and remakitis, there is one prequel I'm hugely excited about! It's definitely the one to beat in the box office come next Summer 2011 (June 3rd, 2011 to be exact, according to SuperHeroHype). I know perhaps it's too soon to predict such …

FlixChatter Review: The A-Team

I originally wanted to post this as my weekend roundup, but haven't got around to finishing it. Anyway, last weekend was a busy one but I managed to watch two movies that couldn't be more different from each other: the action-packed The A-Team and Rob Marshall's musical NINE (review forthcoming). Well in a way they …

Scene Spotlight: Superman Returns – Taking Lois Up

Happy Friday all! Haven't done a scene spotlight for a while, and guess what, I just realized the last scene spotlight I did was from the original  Superman movie! But the reason I feature Superman Returns today is because my sister in-law who lives in Seattle called over the weekend and said she sat next …
